HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED NORTH OF THE REGION TODAY WILL KEEP DRY
WEATHER ACROSS THE NORTHERN BASINS. A STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY
ACROSS VIRGINIA WILL BRING SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO
THE JAMES AND POTOMAC BASINS. BASIN AVERAGED RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE
EXPECTED TO BE ONE HALF TO ONE INCH WITH POINT AMOUNTS POSSIBLY
EXCEEDING TWO INCHES.

AS HIGH PRESSURE SLIDES OFF THE NEW ENGLAND COAST FRIDAY, MOISTURE
WILL SLIDE NORTH WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS REACHING
AS FAR NORTH AS PENNSYLVANIA. AGAIN, THE HIGHEST FORECASTED RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OF ONE HALF TO ONE INCH WILL BE ACROSS VIRGINIA.

THE THREAT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE SATURDAY AS A
COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE NORTHWEST. FORECASTED RAINFALL
AMOUNTS ARE GENERALLY LESS THAN ONE HALF INCH.

A PERIOD OF DRY WEATHER LOOKS TO BE IN STORE SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.

ON AREA RIVES AND CREEKS, MINOR RISES FROM PREVIOUS RAINFALL WILL
CONTINUE DOWN THE LOWER END OF THE MAIN STEM RIVERS THROUGH TODAY.
ELSEWHERE, GENERALLY MINOR CHANGES ARE EXPECTED INTO THE WEEKEND.
